BCI in Stroke Rehab

From Guger technologies: g.tec

The principal goal of BETTER – a STREP Project in the ICT area under the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme (FP7) – is to improve physical rehabilitation therapies of gait disorders in stroke patients based on BNCI assistive technologies, producing improved systems, providing guidelines for improving future systems, and developing benchmarking and evaluation tools. The project will validate, technically, functionally and clinically, the concept of improving stroke rehabilitation with wearable exoskeletons and robotic gait trainers based on a TOP DOWN approach: The robot exerts physical stimulation – at the periphery – as a function of targeted neural activation patterns (related to user involvement).
